Duchess China Tea Trios--Violets



Happy Friday! Last weekend I was on the hunt for one last tuck in for the MMP Secret Sister Gift Exchange for my Secret Sis, Dianne of Mama's Pocketbooks (Don't worry, she already knows...). Not only did I find a special gift for her, but just look at what I found for my shop--2 vintage bone china trios! It was love at first sight! These lovely vintage English bone china tea trios covered in violet bouquets would make a lovely addition to any tea cup collection. I just love how the simple shape of the teacup and saucer are set off by the elegant curves of the dessert plate. The sets includes 1 each tea cup, saucer and dessert plate. The 24 kt. hand-painted gold trim shows a bit of wear, but there are no chips, cracks or crazing. Bottom is marked “Duchess Bone China ~ Made in England.” Beautiful! 2 sets available.
